Community in Review: Montage

by Shea Homes Northern California on February 27, 2013


Livermore was founded in the 1830’s by William Mendenhall, but named after local rancher, Robert Livermore. The city boasts a recently renovated downtown full of shops, restaurants and wine bars for anything from a casual lunch to a fancy dinner. Livermore prides itself on its horticulture with vast farmlands, a Regional park and vineyards.

Home to international award-winning Wente Vineyards and critically acclaimed Concannon Vineyard, Livermore has become a pioneer in the wine industry. Some individuals have nicknamed the Tri-Valley city “Little Napa”.

Just 3 miles from downtown sits Montage, a Shea Homes‘ community comprised of both single-family and town home style homes. With vineyard views, close proximity to freeway access and downtown, and a cool resort style feel, Montage may just be the community of your dreams.

Montage features 3 communities: Arborelle, The Ivy and Portico

Arborelle offers eight individual floor plans arranged as carriage homes, flats, and condominiums, making these homes ideal for busy people and carefree lifestyles.

Portico offers six distinctive floor plans combining the best of function and design into Montage’s diverse community.

Ivy is highlighted by spacious and award-winning single-family homes. Three open and casual floor plans make these homes perfect for a convenient Tri-Valley lifestyle.

Visit our website to explore the homes and each floor plan.

Livermore is a town centered on fun and fitness, featuring many biking and hiking trails. In the name of fitness and fun, Montage offers a beautiful swim and recreation center. A pool and spa surrounded by lush landscaping makes this a focal point for fun and fitness. An exercise room with treadmills, a cross-trainer, bicycles, and multi-station gym are included in this community-accessed feature.
